How do you deal with a life you don’t want and a future you’re terrified of?

Run.

That’s what I’ve planned to do for years; run from this narrow world I was born into. Run from the friends I love, but who bind me to the roots I want to leave behind.

Run, towards the anonymity I so desperately crave, to a place where no one knows who I am; where no one cares who my family are.

But something happened that changed all of my plans. My best friend, my sister, fell off her pedestal and hit the ground with a crash.

Now I realise I’m not as ready as I thought I was to run from this life and these people.

Maybe I need the roots that I thought were holding me back, that were actually just stopping me from floating away.

I’m a Scion, one of the elite. I was born into this life, but I crave more.

Everything that’s happened in the last year has shown me that I need my roots, but I want to spread my wings too.

College, boys, adulthood, it’s all calling my name and it’s time to figure out who I am.

My name is Emmy Devereaux and I’m so much more than just the daughter of the president of The Doomsday Sinners MC.

Excerpt

Scanning the rowdy audience, Rahab stumbles upon Jeremy’s face, grimaced with resentment. It is obvious that he’s angry. Her heart races.
What have I done?
“Baby girl, never loves a man dat tinks he’s better den you, and never loves a man dat can’t love you lak he loves himself. Ain’t nothin’ worse den dat type of ownership.” Her Big Mama’s pearls of wisdom cultivate her mind. She can feel Lotti’s presence ushering her to leave.
“Dat one’s too smooth to hold on to, and he’s too fine to waste any’mo of ya time.”
Rahab freezes. Her eyes frantically dot the room. I’m bugging. She can hear Big Mama’s voice clearly over the sound of howling men.
“…and why is ya boobies hanging out lak dis, chile?” A cold breeze runs across Rahab’s chest.
The spotlight dims into darkness as Rahab rushes off the stage feeling she’s become the accusation of harlot bestowed upon her. She’s never done anything this pornographic before. The tears burning her eyes compel her to cry.

#GuestPost Paul CW Beatty and “Children of Fire”

Time for reading historyPaul Beatty1

So, readers, welcome to my Blog Tour this leg courtesy of Nesie’s Place. When Nesie’s Place came up I wondered which. Was it the large, presumed remnant of the Jurassic period i.e. a dinosaur of some sort, living in the deepest and darkest lake on these isles north of Fort William in Scotland?

But there was always a chance it was some resurrected relation of my mythic but fearsome Aunt Nessy, who I never met as a boy but who was threatened would come and eat me if I misbehaved.

But it was neither of these romantic, dramatic options. So, I invite you to read, either as a paperback or an ebook, both available from Amazon.

Children of Fire is a Victorian who-done-it. Its set in the northwest of England in 1842-43 in a time when the industrial revolution that started in England in the second half of the previous century is just short of reaching maturity. By 1851, the national census of the British Isles will show that more people live in cities than in the countryside. Britain will have become the first industrial country in the world.

Enormous social issues were still to be solved. There were issues of immigration, from Ireland, then still John Bulls Other Island as It was still known as over 100 years later. That wave of immigration was Catholic and in places like Stockport formed a large new labour force for the cotton mills. Stockport remains a strongly Catholic town even now but there was a second immigration of people from the land. They were protestant and their needs were met not buy the Anglican Church but by the Methodist Church who could build new chapels near to cotton mills to allow worship as well as teach reading and writing to parents and children alike.

A time of change religious, industrial, and political. Read Children of Fire, an imagining of what it was like to live at its time.

Children of Fire

Can Josiah solve the puzzle before more people die, or is he out of his depth?

In 1841, at the height of the industrial revolution in the North West of England, Josiah Ainscough returns from his travels and surprises everyone by joining the Stockport Police Force, rather than following his adopted father’s footsteps into the Methodist ministry.

While Josiah was abroad, five men died in an explosion at the Furness Vale Powder Mill. Was this an accident or did the Children of Fire, a local religious community, have a hand in it. As Josiah struggles to find his vocation, his investigation into the Children of Fire begins. But his enquiries are derailed by the horrific crucifixion of the community’s leader.

Now Josiah must race against time to solve the puzzle of the violence loose in the Furness Vale before more people die. This is complicated by his affections for Rachael, a leading member of the Children of Fire, and the vivacious Aideen Hayes, a visitor from Ireland.

Can Josiah put together the pieces of the puzzle, or is he out of his depth?

Children of Fire won the Writing Magazine’s Best Novel Prize for 2017.
